Loads this week in MMO news, and some is more interesting than what we have been offered in previous weeks.
FussionFall is getting an expansion for its 5 million users, the EQI&II trademark rumors turned out to be new expansions, Star Wars will be on hand at Comic-Con, and Conan got a new update.
Also, Warhammer and LotRO are celebrating the summer with festivities to make things a bit more zany and fun.
Find out all about these and others after the break.

EVE Online has a new developer blog up for the new expansion Apocrypha explaining how the new exploration system works.
The recent expansion implemented a new drag-and-drop method to exploration, a more visual process than the old way.
It’s supposed to make the discovery of hidden encounters and wormholes easier, but, as with so much in EVE, it can be a bit confusing — thus the tutorial.
The video posted after the break was created by EVE Online player Espoir and is a visual tutorial covering everything from “exploration probe placement” to focusing in on the signatures you discover.

“These wormholes are unstable and will spawn and vanish randomly throughout the known universe”, said Whisper. “A pilot who stumbles across one of these stellar phenomena can fly through it and travel to unknown space, where there are no stargates or stations, just the unexplored void of a new solar system.
“And when I say ‘new solar system’ that is exactly what I mean. It will not be moving you to instanced space but rather to one of the thousands of new solar systems we will be adding to the EVE universe.”
“Wormholes will shift all the time,” he went on. “They will open and close and reopen at random locations throughout New Eden and thus present you with an ever-changing area of space that no-one can control all the choke-points to.
“While it is theoretically possible to move a control tower into wormhole space, set it up and maintain it, the logistical challenge and risks of fueling and defending a tower in a system with no permanent links to known space would be considerable. But then again the potential rewards are equally great.”

CCP has just announced that the 10th free-to-play expansion pack entitled, EVE Online: Apocrypha, will be released on March 10.
In what CCP dubs its most ambitious expansion to date Apocrypha promises that “the fabric of space itself will be transformed as vast, unpredictable wormholes open to connect previously unexplored regions of the universe to the stars of New Eden.
“The seeds of advanced new technology await inside of these cosmic anomalies for those brave enough to explore them. This infusion of technology will enable production of the most dynamic vessels ever – Tech 3 modular ships with an astounding amount of customizability that can fill any role from skirmish muscle to industrial support.”
Full release after the break.
